1000 Hopes for Waco / ARTPrenticeship 2018

1000 Hopes for Waco / ARTPrenticeship 2018



Opportunities for Young Artists. Beauty for Our City.


Last summer, Creative Waco brought an exceptional new program to Waco. Working with Waco ISD and Prosper Waco summer interns, the ARTPrenticeship program resulted in a real-world concept-to-completion mentored work experience for aspiring young creatives that left Waco with new artistic masterpiece. The pilot program was modeled on Cincinnati's award-winning ArtWorks Program, and we were thrilled to bring Waco an exceptional new work in the mural 1000 Hopes for Waco, located downtown on 2nd and Jackson St.

This summer, we are pleased to invite artists and young creatives from our city to apply once more to our program. We are delighted to announce that we will be recruiting 12 young artists from the Waco ISD and Greater Waco Academies through the Prosper Waco Summer Internship program. We are also seeking applicants for the positions of Teaching Artist, Assistant Teaching Artist and Design Consultant.

ARTPrenticeship connects young creatives with artists to create fresh and eye-catching works of art that reflect the beauty of our community. By collaborating with business owners, sponsors and community leaders, the program provides so much more than a summer internship. If you are passionate about beauty for our city, and want to champion our gifted young creatives in Waco, please consider sponsoring our apprentices!
